Chheng's story

Mrs. Chheng S., age 49, is newly married. She has four children from a previous marriage: two sons and two daughters. Two of them have full-time employment in a restaurant, and other one is a construction worker. The family lives on an island in Mekong River about fifteen kilometers from Phnom Penh.

For 30 years, Chheng has been a silk weaver, a skill she learned from her mother. She sells her finished products to a middleman, who then sells them in the Phnom Penh market. Chheng is requesting her first loan of $800 in order to purchase silk materials for her weaving business and to buy a motorbike for commuting.
